Born 1967. Paulo Raposo is media artist, composer, curator and radio producer based in Lisbon, Portugal.

After studies of philosophy and cinema in Lisbon, he has been working in the medium of live electronic and computer sound, performing, recording and exhibiting works in Europe, Middle East and United States.

His work spans across different sound investigations including public space and field recordings, audio-visual environements, electracoustic and interactive works that explores the inter-relationships and displacements between digital process and architectural spaces, using computer and custom-built software to create abstract and delicate sound works. Critics referred to his work as "an opportunity to hear contemporary sound art in one of its best moments with the perfect blend of phonography and masterful processing" and "an imaginative and border-crossing project with its sensors open in all directions".

Raposo performed and colaborated with numerous artists, including Janek Schaefer, Jason Kahn, Stephan Mathieu, Kaffe Matthews, Marc Behrens, John Grzinich, Zbigniew Karkowski, eRikm, Murmer, André Gonçalves, Carlos Santos, Carlos Zíngaro, Christopher Murphy, Koji Asano, Sara Kolster, among others.

He curates Sirr since 2001, a label dedicated to promote challenging sound art, and organizes numerous events.
